where n is the barsago you want to access.

Also possibly GetBar() depending on your exact requirements, which you didn't really specify.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Well, GetBar() does the exact opposite and retrieves the BarsAgo for a DateTime.

Thanks for your help, but when I read Time[0], I get '01.01.1800 00:00:00'.
The reason I want to read these values: I store bar values and some indicator values in a database. When I have to reload the chart, all old values are processed again. To avoid this, I want to use the bar time.

So you don't want to process any historical data? Or just some? If it's the former you can use
 
Code
if (Historical) return;
